Iconic Colossus Closing
Yes, it’s sad but true. What was billed as “the greatest coaster in the world” will be closing permanently August 16, according to banners around Magic Mountain.
This classic woodie was featured in National Lampoon’s Vacation, as well as in many other movies and TV shows.
Could this mean that the long-speculated Iron Colossus is on its way? It’s certainly possible, but nobody knows for sure. No matter what replaces it, Colossus will forever be missed.
